sax and sax2

I inherited a bit of code and noticed that it still uses the SAX (Java) libraries.  When looking at the sax documentation, I see that sax has been deprecated in favor of sax2.

Is it worthwhile to refactor existing code from sax to sax2?

You should wait until they depracate sax2 and use sax3.

I can't conceive of using such stuff. Port everything to a wrapper like xtream.

If it works, no, don't bother.

If you need to make major changes to the code, you should do it then.

Otherwise, do something more interesting - like browse the internet.

Do you have any new requirements that would indicate a need to move to SAX2?

Are there indications from Sun that SAX will be removed from future versions of Java and not just deprecated?

Port it to VB6.
